All right, you're already reading reviews on drink holders so you already recognize the massively huge utilitarian value they bring to a musician and just want the straight scoop on this particular product compared to others. But in case you've not recognized their utilitarian value, below is a short test to determine if a drink holder is right for you. Step 1: has any receptacle filled with any form of liquid ever been placed on top of your amp, cab, monitor, or on the floor next to speaker cables, guitar cables, or power cables? If the answer is yes, your test is complete: you will benefit from a drink holder. If the answer is no, then the only place you've ever played is your living room and you probably don't need this product.

Ok, on to the straight scoop. I did a lot of searching and review reviewing before settling on the Vater cup. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Of upmost value to me was something that would attach firmly, and would hold a varied assortment of cup/bottle sizes. The Vater met and exceeded both of these requirements for me.

The Vater holder is made by a company that for the most part, caters to drummers. As a result, their stuff is built to withstand vibrations and banging. The Vater drink holder uses a two sided clamp (think of the hands on a legoman figure), which are both tied into a wingnut. Once the clamp is placed on your mic stand, drum kit, or DESK! (yes i use mine in the office now on non-gig days to save surface space and avoid spillage onto important documents), you simply twist the wingnut until such time as the clamp is tightened. So far, this clamp system has worked awesomely for me. Again, i've been able to attach the thing to non-rounded items such as bookshelves, my desk, and door jams... all with enough hold power to handle the weight of a drink.

While I originally set out to get a "swirlygig", I have not tried it or others like it and can not attest as to their reliability and functionality, but I do know that I wanted something that would actually grip my mic stand (not just hang off it), and the Vater cup has exceeded my hopes. There are several swirley gig reviews that complain of it being too big or too small for their particular mic stand. The Vater won't have that problem because the clamp design.

Just last week during a show a bartender was busy and by the time she brought the drink to me I was in the middle of a song. Instead of putting my drink on the ground or on my marshall head as used to be the case, i motioned to the cup holder with my knee and voila, my equipment was saved and the drink was immediately within grabbing distance.

I love my Vater cup holder, and you likely will too. From one musician to another... cheers!

I nearly forgot that I had ordered this product because it was on back order for months! When I got around to thinking about my incomplete order, I contacted the company to inquire about the status...only to be told that it was still on back order. It would have been nice if the company had been more proactive in keeping me informed about the back order status or they could have offered alternatives, including sending my money back. I was not impressed with the customer service.

    Comments about Vater Drink Holder with Clamp:

    I have used a variety of drinks holders on-stage over the years with mixed results. Most issues were with the mounting method. The snap-on units only worked with specific diameter stands and could be knocked off creating a mess (especially if the drinks contents landed on a pedal board!). This Vater unit is different... with it's wide-range clamp mechanism it can be mounted to various pieces of drum hardware, microphone stands (top or bottom tube sizes) as well as on tubular guitar stands. It might even mount to on-wall electrical conduit! The mounting is sturdy and the metal cup is deep to keep things in place. It has a foam liner on the bottom so glass containers are padded. The cup is large enough to accommodate cans, bottles and glasses. I love the security, versatility and the clamping mechanism. Best bang for the buck!

          Excellent product! Ordered one, then a week later, two more for jealous bandmates (great birthday gifts).

                I purchased one of these to clip onto a Manhassett music stand.
                It is sturdy, & adjusts so I can put it where my water bottle is easy for me to reach.
                It is so useful to me, that the others members of our Praise Team wanted one too, so we purchased 5 more.

                    We bought one for our pastor to use when he preaches, because he usually puts his notes on a music stand. Now we have bought several more for others to use too. It is sturdy, holds solidly to different types of music stands, and is large enough to accommodate bottles or coffee cups.

                        I play a Stagg electric bass viol, and use their stand for it. This thing fits on it, the angle of the stand is not a factor; the cup or can or bottle stays still in the holder. This thing works!

                            Buy at least two because you'll end up giving away at least one. When other musicians see it, they want it.

                            This Vater drink holder is sturdy and well built. The adjustable clamp will fit virtually any size diameter mic, music and drum stand. I believe it would clamp onto the edge of a 2x4 (exposed studs in a garage practice room or just a garage party) though I haven't tried that yet. The cup has a wide diameter and good depth to hold nearly any large drink container. It has a rubber "pad" in the bottom so the container won't slide around easily and make noise or slosh liquid out when the stand gets bumped.

                            One very minor criticism: the bottom of the cup is not completely flat. It is flat in the middle and beveled around the edge. This can result in the your drink container standing at a modest angle which could cause a minor amount of spillage when completely full to the top so I just take a couple quick gulps before putting it in and there is no problem.

                            This is a well thought out drink holder (other than my minor criticism about the bottom) and I am very satisfied with it. I will definitely buy a few more.
